Tasty Kitchen has recipes from all over and not just from bloggers. Recipes from everyday folks who love to cook and bake. I have several recipes bookmarked and finally got around to trying this one.
This recipe comes from A Country Cook and it is similar to the Maple Walnut Blondies you would find at the Applebee's restaurant, and it does not disappoint!
The ingredients come together easily in a mixer; what is unusual about this blondie is the inclusion of white chocolate chips. The batter is very thick. Be patient spreading it into a floured 9x13 baking pan.
While the blondies are baking, make the Maple Butter Sauce. This is probably the BEST part of the dessert. While simple to make: butter, heavy cream, maple syrup (do not use imitation) and light corn syrup ...
... it does take about 30 minutes for it to reduce into this caramelly, creamy, rich sauce. Make sure you do this over low heat and simmer, stirring occasionally.
This thick, chewy blondie, chock full of white chocolate chips and walnuts, is almost perfect with a vanilla bean ice cream ....
Almost perfect ... until you load on the Maple Butter sauce.
